    You'd think so, but I haven't found it yet.

    Misting

    Would the time be measured in seconds or minutes?

    Misting

    I'm setting up a 90 gallon rain forest vivarium. I've ordered a Mist king system. But I really don't know how often or how long I should run it. How do other people do it?

    UVB

    I'm choosing a UVB souirce for my 48" rainforest vivarium to house either Giant Day Geckos or Gold Dust. I've settled on Arcadia fluorescents, but I'm unsure about the appropriate output. Right now I'm thinking that I'll go with the 14% Desert, the highest output and most expensive. The...

    Mirrors

    I'm planning the background for my new vivarium and I've thought about putting mirrors on the ends to reflect light back into the enclosure. It might look weird and maybe not even be helpful. I'm wondering if a male gecko would react to his reflection.

    Enough room?

    I'm in the process of setting up a rain forest vivarium in a po gal. aquarium 48x18x24. I wonder if there is room enough in there for 2 pairs of Gold Dust Geckos. I know that males are very territorial, but an enclosure that size with a lot of plant cover might let them stay out of each...

    Glass vs. Screen

    Yes, that was my thinking too. I plan to use a Spectral Designs 44x8 LED panel with incorporated UVB florescent tube and an incandescent UVB basking light. Is it possible that this would be too much UV?

    Glass vs. Screen

    With a glass canopy, I have been planning to use a computer fan, either the large cabinet fan or the little 1 inch Pentium Fan. My concern is with the glass filtering most or all of the UVB light. A screen top would let in the light, but let out the moisture. As you say, maybe a plexiglass...

    Glass vs. Screen

    I'm designing a rain forest vivarium using a 48x18x24 aquarium. I've been thinking that I would need my glass canopy to keep the humidity up, but I've read about people using screen tops. This would be better for UVB, but can you keep it humid in there? Most of my experience has been with...

    Giant Madagascar Day Gecko Advice

    Hello Kamrank22. I too am new to this forum and it looks like you're no getting much help. I too am looking to set up a 48x18x24 aquarium as a planted vivarium for a pair of Giant Day Geckos. I have been thinking that I would need to use my glass canopy to maintain enough humidity, but you...

    Hello

    Hello. I am a retired chemical lab technician with over 50 years of experience breeding tropical fish and who has dabbled in keeping (but not breeding) herps all my life. Maintaining 50 tanks finally got to be more work than fun, so I've scaled back to one display tank and two large tanks that...
